Depends on how this "Public Calendar" was created and is used.

If its in a public folder davorin is right
If the user is having trouble navigating to the public folder they could also simply press CTRL+6 on their keyboard
They will see public folders appear at the bottom of the Nav pane on the left of the screen

If this Public calendar was setup as a User or Mailbox

Simply go to File>Open>Other users Folder
Click on Name
Find the Name of the Vacation Calendar/user in the address list
Change Folder Name to Calendar

Alternativley they can go into their calendar
Right Click on My Calendar
Choose ADD CALENDAR
From Address LIst

Then again choose the calendar Name from teh Address List

Ok I tried both those suggestions and I  found in either case I needed to know the target web address or email name which I do not.  All of the emails names are employees in our company, and the others are distribution groups.

This calendar is the calendar that is setup through the sharepoint site (http://companyweb/Lists/Vacation%20Calendar/calendar.aspx) its standard right out of the box. The problem is I dont know much information other then being able to get to it intranet calendar in a web browser.

Thanks
